    • The Committee on Transport and Tourism adopted the report drafted by Georgios KOUMOUTSAKOS (EPP, EL) on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a Programme to support the further development of an Integrated Maritime Policy.

      It recommends that the European Parliament's position adopted at first reading, under the ordinary legislative procedure, amends the Commission proposal as follows:

      Programme objectives: Members consider that the primary objective of which is to maximise the sustainable development, economic growth and social cohesion of EU coastal, island and outermost regions through coherent and coordinated maritime-related policies and relevant international cooperation. The Programme shall support the sustainable use of the seas and oceans, and the expansion of scientific knowledge.

      Further objectives include: (i) supporting the development and implementation of sea-basin strategies; (ii) promoting the protection of the marine environment, in particular its biodiversity; (iii) supporting sustainable "blue" economic growth, employment,  innovation and new technologies in maritime sectors and in coastal,  island and outermost regions in the EU; (iv) enhancing the visibility of maritime Europe.

      Operational objectives: the structure of the objectives should allow a clear attribution of operational objectives to a general objective. According to Members the operational objectives should be detailed and specific, but a measure of flexibility is needed. Therefore there should be the possibility to modify them during the implementation period. As the operational objectives are non-essential elements of this legislative act which are of general application, Article 290 of the TFEU on delegated acts must be applied.

      Eligible actions and beneficiaries: the Programme may provide financial assistance for the following types of actions: (i) studies, research and operational cooperative programmes, including education,  professional training and re-training programmes; (ii) public information and best practice sharing, awareness raising and associated communication and dissemination activities, including publicity campaigns, and events and the development and maintenance of websites and relevant social networks and databases; (iii) conferences, seminars, workshops, stakeholders fora and training activities for relevant professional groups.

      Third countries and stakeholders in third countries should not be excluded from the list of possible beneficiaries.

      Work programmes: as a framework for the implementation of the Programme, the Commission shall adopt one or several work programmes for appropriate periods by means of delegated acts.

      Financing: the committee recalls that in its resolution of 21 October 2010 on Integrated Maritime Policy (IMP), the Parliament supported the Commission's stated intention to finance the IMP with EUR 50 million over the next two years in order to build upon previous projects in the areas of policy, governance, sustainability and surveillance.

      The amendments proposed by the Members stipulate that the available annual appropriations and the appropriate nomenclature shall be authorised by the budgetary authority within the limits of the current financial framework, without jeopardising the implementation of current programmes and activities, thus avoiding redeployment within the relevant heading of the current financial framework. Members state that the budgetary resources allocated to the Programme shall be taken from the margin available in heading 2 of the multiannual financial framework for 2007-2013, without prejudice to the decision of the budgetary authority.

      Areas of expenditure for various objectives: the financial envelope shall be earmarked for the following areas:

      • integrated maritime governance and sea-basin related activities;
      • tools for the development of an integrated maritime policy;
      • promotion of the international dimension of the integrated maritime policy and  the visibility of maritime Europe;
      • definition of sustainability limits in respect of maritime activities through  the marine Strategy Framework Directive, as well as sustainable economic growth, job creation and innovation.

      Reporting, evaluation and extension: Members call on the European Parliament and the Council shall be regularly and promptly informed about the Commission's work.

      The Commission shall submit to the European Parliament and the Council:

      • a progress report no later than 31 December 2012. The progress report shall include an evaluation of the Programme's impact on other Union policies.
      • an ex-post evaluation report no later than 31 December 2014.

      The Commission shall submit, if appropriate, a legislative proposal on the extension of the Programme beyond 2013 with an appropriate financial envelope.

      Delegated acts: Members aim to see more involve of the Legislators in further decision-making through delegated acts and reporting. They introduce amendments laying down the conditions of the delegation of powers.

    • The Council took note of a report on progress in work on a draft regulation aimed at establishing a programme to support the further development of an integrated maritime policy.

      The position of Member States in relation to the legislative proposal may be summarised as follows: an overall consensus was reached on the majority of the Articles. The main concerns expressed by Member States relate to the budgetary aspects and to the committee procedure.

      Budgetary aspects: a majority of delegations have reservations regarding the proposed amount of EUR 50 million. One group of Member States proposes EUR 20 million. Another group of Member States can accept the amount of EUR 50 million. Some delegations can also accept the latter amount provided that the examination procedure is applied. Other delegations can be flexible on the amount provided that it is met through reallocation. The Commission proposes using the margins of Heading 2, while all Member States strongly insist on financing the Programme through reallocation.

      The Presidency stressed on several occasions that this Regulation shall be without prejudice to the future decision of the budgetary authorities regarding the source of the amount.

      Nevertheless, the Presidency considers it necessary to reflect the strong position of the Council on this issue and therefore proposed inserting recital (7c), bearing in mind the forthcoming negotiations with the European Parliament. The Commission opposes this insertion, considering that the decision on the source of funding belongs to the budgetary authorities and that the legislative and budgetary procedures should not be mixed up.

      Concerning the financial envelope for technical assistance, the Council requested the introduction of a ceiling to be determined once agreement is reached on the total amount. One delegation proposed putting the ceiling at 1%. Commission opposes the introduction of the ceiling, arguing that it is not compatible with the Financial Regulation.

      Committee procedure: all delegations objected to the use of the advisory procedure as proposed by the Commission. The Council strongly argues for the examination procedure to be used.

    • PURPOSE: to establish a programme to support the further development on an Integrated Maritime Policy (IMP).

      LEGISLATIVE ACT: Regulation (EU) No 1255/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a Programme to support the further development of an Integrated Maritime Policy.

      CONTENT: following a first-reading agreement reached with the European Parliament, the Council adopted a regulation establishing an EU programme to further promote the development and the implementation of the EU's integrated maritime policy. The Union's Integrated Maritime Policy shall foster coordinated and coherent decision-making to maximise the sustainable development, economic growth and social cohesion of Member States, in particular with regard to coastal, insular and outermost regions in the Union, as well as maritime sectors, through coherent maritime-related policies and relevant international cooperation.

      General objectives of the programme: the programme, which will support the sustainable use of the seas and oceans, and the expansion of scientific knowledge, has the following general objectives:

      • to foster the development and implementation of integrated governance of maritime and coastal affairs;
      • to contribute to develop synergies and to support sea or coast-related policies, particularly in the fields of economic development, employment, environmental protection, research, maritime safety, energy and the development of green maritime technologies;
      • to promote the protection of the marine environment, in particular its biodiversity, and the sustainable use of marine and coastal resources, in line with the "marine strategy framework directive" (2008/56/EC);
      • to support the development and implementation of sea-basin strategies;
      • to improve and enhance international cooperation;
      • to support economic growth, employment, innovation and new technologies in maritime sectors in the Union.

      For each general objective, more detailed operational objectives are defined.

      Financial envelope: the financial envelope for the implementation of the Programme shall be set at EUR 40 000 000 for the period from 1 January 2011 to 31 December 2013. This amount shall be broken down as follows:

      • development and implementation of integrated governance of maritime and coastal affairs and visibility of the IMP: at least 4%;
      • development of cross-sectoral tools: at least 60%;
      • protection of the marine environment and sustainable use of marine and coastal resources: at least 8%;
      • development and implementation of sea-basin strategies: at least 8%;
      • external cooperation and coordination of the international dimension of the IMP: maximum 1%;
      • sustainable economic growth, employment, innovation and new technologies: at least 4%.

      Up to 1% of the financial envelope may also cover necessary expenditure relating to any preparatory action, monitoring, control, audit or evaluation directly necessary in order to implement eligible actions under this Regulation effectively and efficiently and to achieve its objectives.

      Reporting, evaluation and extension: the Commission shall regularly and promptly inform the European Parliament and the Council about its work. It shall submit to the European Parliament and to the Council: (a) a progress report no later than 31 December 2012; the progress report shall include an evaluation of the Programme's impact on other Union policies;

      (b) an ex-post evaluation report no later than 31 December 2014. If appropriate, the Commission shall submit a legislative proposal on the extension of the Programme beyond 2013 with an appropriate financial envelope.

      ENTRY INTO FORCE: 06/12/2011.
